A splitting sinus headache kept me home from work today. When medicine made it almost tolerable,

I made soup.

I made chili.

I organized the fridge.

I thought about the blessing of being home and doing what I used to do when I was a stay-at-home mom. It was restoring to me. Or should I say, a restoring of me? To take a break from work and cook to nourish my family was a deep, core experience for me today.

And, I saw a red-headed woodpecker on my tired, old maple tree!

    Ahhh, isn’t it wonderful when the world gives us just what we need at just the right time?

  2. I can’t help but juxtapose the old “tired” tree with the woodpecker’s red crest, to our old tired self cooking hot chili 🙂

  3. Sorry you had to have the headache to get a break. Love that you filled your day with colorful food and colorful birds!

    What a productive day you had, even with a headache! Sounds like maybe your body was telling you it was time for a break. Hope you’re feeling better!

    I used to be a stay-at-home mom too, before I started teaching. One of the best things I have done with my life – don’t regret a single day. Hope you are feeling better!

  6. Hope you are feeling better and your day of rest and restoration are just what you needed.

    Hope you’re feeling better. This crazy changing weather has given me a sinusy headache too.
